This Card Holds a Pledge of Promise - Hope - Reunion
The Weight of Disappointment
Inside this card
When we live vicariously through our children our impact on their emotional and spiritual growth can be stifling, when their desires and ambitions differ from ours.
As parents it is our job to guide not collide with our children.
Offer them alternatives without expecting them to wholly embrace ours to the detriment of their own.
It's hard to be a paragon when our fears and expectations for the ones we love are at stake, but if we watch and listen to our differences, an open line of communication can always be maintained.
The greatest gift you can give a child is the freedom to explore their own heart and mind without the pressure of our disappointment.
This alone will give them the freedom they desire in the safety of our love.
I am proud of who I am, much of which I attribute to you and give thanks.
What I ask from you is acceptance of my individuality and an opportunity of reunion.
